Tera Melos

Melding the aggression of punk with the technical intricacies of prog rock, Tera Melos use jerky shifts in time signatures and disjointed guitar noodling bearing a close resemblance to Don Caballero and Hella. Like their counterparts in complicated rock, finger-tapped guitar parts are the centerpiece, complemented by angular bass riffs and splintered spazz-jazz drumming, but contrasting dynamics are a bigger focus of the band's songs, with ambient electronics and sparse vocal lines occasionally incorporated into the interludes to offset some of the more convoluted and noisier sections. Following stints in hardcore projects No Regard, Hoods, and Stabbed in the Throat, guitarist Nick Reinhart, drummer Jeff Worms, and bassist Nate Latona started Tera Melos in 2004. Months after forming, they started playing shows, making an immediate impact on the Sacramento live circuit with chaotic live performances that demonstrated their ability to play while doing cartwheels, guitar stands, and amp flips. Their first album, Tera Melos, was self-released in 2005. Heavy touring followed and, exhausted by life on the road, Worms left the band to settle down shortly after recording the Drugs to the Dear Youth EP. Vince Rogers came in as a replacement drummer, touring continued, and the band found solace in the roster of Sargent House, home of similar-minded artists These Arms Are Snakes and Maps & Atlases. Drugs to the Dear Youth was re-released on CD that year, and a five-song split with By the End of Tonight followed, alongside extensive U.S. touring with Heavy Heavy Low Low and the Fall of Troy. Drummer John Clardy replaced Rogers before the arrival of their 2010 album, Patagonian Rats. The band's next record, X'ed Out, took a more direct approach and was released on Sargent House in 2013. ~ Jason Lymangrover, Rovi
full bio

I seriously love this band. Not many bands out there that can completely expand my imagination about what's possible in music!
Just so we're clear, "Complex full of phantoms" is NOT a Tera Melos record. It's a split ep. The first (best) 6 tracks are by By The End Of Tonight.
hahahahahaaa 5
I love you guys!
I seriously started crying when I heard this band because they are so good.
Dude. This is freaking amazing
Getting to see them with TTNG:
Fl
this bio is wrong aha, jeff worms was a rythm guitarist who had left the band vince had been the drummer the whole time until he left after they finished shortly after DDTDY/CFOF

i've been spinning P.R. for about a year now. amazing stuff.
woahh there pandora, you cant say don cab and tera melos have a close resemblance to eachorther. Its like saying me and a gorilla have a close resemblance. I mean we share some sorta similart traits but we are still quite different. Don cab plays an very different style of math rock compared to tera melos. I'd have to compare tera closer to hella perhaps?
Yes, yes, but after so long with nothing, I'm glad to come back and find a little something. grooveshark has some tracks...
Pandora isn't a complete compilation. . . yet. They're missing a lot of music, but hopefully it gets added eventually. Because you can never have too much Tera Melos playing.
Tera Melos rips so fuc*ing hard.
I'm running across this more and more...I'm thinking Pandora needs to spend some of their money on cleaning this up...I'll do it for you Pandora along with reworking some of these bios
I think the editors got their pages mixed up.
John Clardy is the new drummer. He used to drum for Fishboy. An where is Drugs? They have way more albums than this
kkendro
